Sharyn Clough: Early
With Professor Lynn
Hankinson Nelson, post-dissertation defense, Simon
Fraser University, June 1997. Lynn's work in the
philosophy of science focuses on the links between Quine
and feminist theory. We met at a conference on
women and science in Minneapolis in the spring of 1995.
She is now professor
emerita at the University of Washington, Seattle.
Here's Lynn Nelson
with our colleagues and sisters in the struggle,
Alison Wylie, and Nancy Tuana, taken at the conference Feminism
and Naturalism at the University of St.
Louis/Missouri Sept. 25, 1999.
Professor Bjorn Ramberg, post-dissertation defense,
Simon Fraser University, June 1997. While reading Rorty
in graduate school, it became clear that I had better
understand Donald Davidson. Luckily for me, SFU had just
hired Bjorn, an established Davidson scholar. Bjorn has
since left SFU to follow his heart back home to Oslo.
He proves that it is possible to take a critical,
interdisciplinary approach to analytic philosophy and
still survive, with wit, charm and grace, too.
for fun, here's a more recent pic, this time celebrating
the dissertation defense of one of Bjorn's students at the
University of Oslo, Dec. 2016.
photo was also taken at the Feminism and
Naturalism conference, Sept. 25, 1999. A
better group of philosophy colleagues you could not hope
to have. From L-R (back) Alison Wylie, Linda Nicholson,
Joseph Rouse, Alison Jaggar, Nancy Tuana (front) Edrie
Sobstyl, me, and Catherine Hundleby. (We three are all
Canadian, as is Alison Wylie. Another Canadian, Richmond
Campbell, was taking the photo, I think. We are taking
over. Slowly. When you least expect it... For a
complete conspiracy theory on this point visit here.)
